I’m recovering as I write this, from something that becomes more traumatising the older you get. The hangover. Or at least that’s when I started writing it, then I had to have a little nap and forgot about it for a few days. Also why are they called hangovers, if they were a literal hangover… Continue reading Hangovers.
What do you think? I’m a fan, but it’s true that they are so main stream now it’s almost a rebellion not to get one. I had my first experience 20ish years ago when I decided to go for the classic lower back tattoo of the time. They do say to regret the things you… Continue reading So tattoos?
Two weeks into the new six week Melbourne lockdown and there’s a chance I’ve lost my mind. It’s a Sunday afternoon I’m working on my fourth jigsaw, and there are crows pecking at my roof. (I live on the top floor of a building that has a stupid Australian metal roof). These crows peck at… Continue reading The Lockdown Diaries
I am sitting on a station platform trying to avoid the rain. I normally drive into work, but today is our divisional Christmas party. It’s summer in Australia so we are having a barbecue and playing a round of adventure golf. The decision was made after last years successful one playing lawn bowls in the… Continue reading Are the weather Gods against me?!
How my job has shaped my life. Maths for a living?! If you’d asked me 25 years ago that this is what I would end up doing I would have laughed at you. Voluntarily submitting to a lifetime of double maths, don’t be ridiculous!! But here we are. In primary school I was sure I… Continue reading The Calculator Chronicles
Always have. The new places, the old familiar ones, not having to go to work or school. Eating all the food and drinking all the drinks. It all started as a kid. I’ve been so lucky. Even though we didn’t really have much money when I was small, we had a holiday every single year.… Continue reading I really do love holidays!
I don’t really know how to tell you about this place. I can show you the pictures and tell you what I did. But the feeling of this place is something else. You’re only going to get it if you come yourself. But I’ll give you the rundown of what I got up to, so… Continue reading My trip to the centre.
What is it about designer labels. Why do I get sucked in. It’s taken me a long time. I couldn’t afford them when I was younger. I still can’t get my head around how people in their 20s are rocking a Gucci Soho!! I bought my first Designer bag when I was in my 30s,… Continue reading From High Street to High End
Christmas in Australia is amazing. Sunshine, swimming pools and everywhere is quiet as everyone is off on summer holidays. Only problem is that for a girl from England this couldn’t feel less like Christmas. It should be freezing, snowing if possible and everywhere should be manic and busy. Shops should be rammed and opening later,… Continue reading Double Christmas!
I traveled around Australia with my cousin when I was 20. Not to be too dramatic (oh go on then) but I had no idea what I supposed to do with my life back then (still not totally sure). I don’t really think anyone does, unless you have one of those true callings like medicine… Continue reading Back to Byron Bay
